Hi,

Not so brilliant at my location. But 619 km with 1 kW - what to expect?
Time: 19:28 - 19:56 UTC.

Hi,

The label of this transmission is DeutschlandRadio. Hence it should be DLR?

Too much a.m. interference on the wire, will try the loop next days.

Hi,

I am receiving Putbus with some 15 dB today. It says 23.5 kb/s parametric stereo. The sound is VERY bad. An analog phone line is much better.

What's wrong?

Regards,

Edgar

No audio, probably I was too late (...again)
Our local broadcaster WDR on 720kHz is interfering.

Hi all

Putbus 729 kHz reception was fine for a long time, but throughout the last months it became poor. The spectrum is not too bad, but rarely I get some demodulation.

I did not change anything, so what has happened ???

Greetings Christoph

Hi

Last Saturday I put up another antenna. What a difference now. DLF Putbus is now over 20dB S/N for most of the daylight time.

Last week I tried some mobile reception driving along the east coast of Schleswig-Holstein. I used a 1,2m Whip with magnetic base on the car, homemade impedance converter and the TenTec 320D. Close to the water reception of DLF Putbus is possible on many occasions.

At home I have some problems with my computer monitor which has a spurious emission right at 729 kHz. Using the notebook eliminates the problem.

For just a few seconds I got him!

Poor little Tx, broadcasting in supposedly high audio quality (see the bitrate, where DW is dreaming of!) all the day. But nobody, except some hardcore DRM-DXers ever listens. Or did they expect all the visitors coming to the island of Ruegen bring a Mayah portable receiver with them ;-)) ???

73, Andreas

Hi,

I can rather frequently pick up DLF on this frequency. Not always with audio, but at least today the sound quality was good.

Hi Per and all!

It's just a question of my location. When at home I can hear much noise and some interfering stations in AM mode. Maybe these are even the low power transmitters of Bayerischer Rundfunk on 729 kHz (?).

So two days ago I made a DXpedition to a "silent" spot on the seaside. From somewhat north of Luebeck (and roughly at 130 km distance from the Tx - the signal path beeing most part over the sea) my portable Mayah receiver was able to decode some data, but only very short bits of audio. Time was around 13:00 UTC.

Unfortunately this receiver is plagued with faulty contacts, the power line plug loses contact on the slightest movement, what means when you have just found the right position, reception is suddenly interrupted. So I decided not to have this frustrating experience for more than 10 minutes!

I guess with a stationary receiver and a good loop antenna you could get audio from this location also during daytime.

73, Andreas

Second service

Hi,

Tonight I notice a second service of DLF. 'wir uber uns' HVXC 8 kHz @ 5.42 kbps.
Question:What's this?

@ Andreas, I'm some 600 km from Putbus, so I think that it's a question of interference. I can see on the spectrum that there is an AM-station, but it doesn't interfere.
